Clear red with little fruit on the nose and less on the palate. This was almost astringent and very thin. The end was just short of tart. I was quite disappointed because I really expected this Premier Cru to be better than this. In it’s defense there appeared to be some leakage around the cork and, since I live in Florida, it might well have gotten “cooked” somewhere. My wine merchant is a Prince because he gave me credit for the bottle even without me asking.
